I’m not a fan of bookless libraries. I like multimedia and no doubt will eventually accept e-books, but I do like libraries with books and I don’t see the need to rid ourselves of books. Call me old fashioned like Maggie Smith’s character on Downton Abbey, “first electricity, now telephones, what’s next?”
The University of Chicago has built a new library and has found an innovative way to store millions of books in a post-modern space. Take a look.
